It is the simple things....coffee with a good friend, a great book,
whistling the theme to the Muppets....a found torn n' tattered ball....

Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog, glad you like the dogs (easy to say when you're not living with them!!)

Ah, the Muppets, one of my all time favourite shows. Thanks for putting that song in my head - it's taken me right back to my youth!

Sharon said...

In our impossibly busy world, this is a very important lesson to remember!! Thank you Sophie...and that is a very nice ball:)

Mildred said...

What a sweetheart she is!

Katherine Aucoin said...

You are so right, You would be amazed how happily you can live with less. Good lesson.

Kathy said...

Oh yes, my Chloe found a discarded toy the other day and it's like it's brand new again........aren't dogs the best??

Oh Sophie, you need a new ball! But that one seems to make even your eyes smile:)

It's a lesson we should all take to heart. Let's be happy with the little things. I think of how my daughter's face lights up when she sees a ladybug. Sophie really found a treasure in that torn up ball :)

The OP Pack said...

Ah yes, for Mom it would be a hot cup of tea with a dear friend, a long walk with the pups. And for the pups, why is it that the old and worn out toys are always the most popular?

Woos, the OP pack

Oz Girl said...

Ah yes, the simple things, I have found that maxim to be ever so true now that I am in my 40s, and as far as dog toys, Tori's newest "toy" is the empty toilet paper roll,she loves to play fetch with it... but she nudges it in the bathroom while there is still paper on it! (um, yes, cheap toys!)

Jan said...

What a nice smile!!!

Pam said...

Oh, look at that face! She is so pleased with her find.

Barry said...

Like playing with the box instead of the toy at Christmas?

Bordershot said...

Oh yes, i like you lessons!
And Sophies smile is the world greatest!
Mmmh, and now? The Muppetstheme is in my head and will follow me up into the night...;o)

I love the Muppets! I have three muppet albums, me, not the kids. One greatest hits (with faves Rainbow Connection and It's Not Easy Being Green), one Christmas (with John Denver) and one bluesy one with Rowlf the Dog. They make me happy...
